Purpose

Subventions are intended to assist in the costs of manuscript publication. Subventions are considered particularly appropriate in cases where publication costs are unusually high due to artwork, maps, photographs, and other special production elements.

UMOR does not provide for translation or routine author activities, such as indexing or page and reprint costs of articles in professional journals.

Eligibility

Instructional and Research Faculty, Librarians, Curators, and Archivists may apply.

Budget

Publication subvention support is awarded on a competitive basis and is not guaranteed.  Applications that are approved for funding will receive an award up to a maximum of $5,000.  UMOR requires a 1:1 match from the unit, school/college, department, or other internal sources. 

Deadlines

15th of June & October 

 

Notification of funding decisions is typically made within 12 weeks of the program’s deadline.  Late applications received will not be processed until the next deadline for that program. Applicants can facilitate expeditious review by providing complete information and all required signatures.

 

For more information on the review and award process, including required signatures, award administration, and funding restrictions, see our Supplemental Information page.

FAQs

No.  UMOR does not provide for translation, even when the original work has been expanded.
